SGI and Fluent Inc. combine efforts to port and optimize Fluent's CFD software

Fluent : 14 November, 2000  (New Product)
SGI, known worldwide for providing a broad range of high-performance computing and advanced graphics solutions, and Fluent Inc., the world-leading provider of computational fluid dynamics software and services, are combining efforts to port and optimize Fluent CFD software for the Intel Itanium platform. The results of this joint effort will give CFD users that depend on high-performance, high-memory simulations-including users in the automotive and aerospace industries-the ability to do large-scale simulations and include better resolution in their models on the Itanium architecture.
SGI, known worldwide for providing a broad range of high-performance computing and advanced graphics solutions, and Fluent Inc., the world-leading provider of computational fluid dynamics software and services, are combining efforts to port and optimize Fluent CFD software for the Intel Itanium platform.

The results of this joint effort will give CFD users that depend on high-performance, high-memory simulations-including users in the automotive and aerospace industries-the ability to do large-scale simulations and include better resolution in their models on the Itanium architecture.

Almost every industry that involves advanced engineering uses CFD. Its use is rapidly expanding, and more engineers use Fluent CFD software worldwide than any other CFD technology. The SGI and Fluent alliance will impact several industries including: appliances, biomedical, chemical processing, HVAC&R, glass, oil and gas, power generation, semiconductors, steel and turbomachinery.

'This project promises tremendous benefit to end users because it gives them more choices and helps them achieve optimal performance for their high-memory, high-resolution models,' said Barbara Hutchings, director of Strategic Partnerships, Fluent Inc. 'We expect significant market interest in the Itanium platform. This technical evaluation with SGI allows us to prepare a totally market-ready solution for our highly valued customers.'

Ken Jacobsen, vice president of ISV Partner Programs, SGI, called the effort 'another important step in a long, productive relationship with Fluent. Fluent is currently a top performer in the IA-32 Linux operating system platform parallel clusters. Working together to extend this to the Itanium architecture will help address the needs of both companies' customers for larger memory and solutions to more complex problems.'
